Investors in People Gold
Regard has held a ‘Gold’ level Investors in People accreditation since 2015. Investors in People inspectors assess the way an organisation invests in its people in relation to the effectiveness of leadership and management at all levels, support and acknowledgment for good work, and the creation of platforms for improvement across the business.
Of the UK companies that hold an Inspectors in People accreditation, only 16% achieve the ‘Gold’ level. Only 46% of the companies that hold the ‘Gold’ accreditation and are reassessed (as Regard was in 2018) retain it.*
In our most recent inspection report (2018) the independent inspector said:
People are encouraged to use their initiative in their role. Many commented that this is, indeed, expected and integral to their job. Interviewees volunteered that it is this aspect that makes their work highly enjoyable, interesting and rewarding. People at all levels quoted many examples of where they have taken initiative.
The organisation provides a wide-range of training that help staff develop in and outside their role.
Regard prides itself on providing roles that are interesting, challenging, offering development and potential for growth. People are encouraged to come forward with ideas.
There is excellent evidence of career progression, based on career paths, encouragement and many examples, which are communicated to staff.
Regard values employees regardless of race and ethnicity and is committed to recruiting people of a diverse background.
